[Intro]

G  Cadd9  Dadd9 (x2)


[Verse 1]

          Em7
I've been all around the world
            G
I've been a new sensation
        Am7
But it doesn't really matter in this ge-generation
Em7                        G
The sophomore slump is an uphill battle
    Am7
And someone said that ain't my scene
                   Em7
'Cause they need a new song
                      G
Like a new religion, music for the television
Am7
I can't do the long division, someone do the math
          Em7                                               
B’for the record label puts me
        G
On the shelf up in the freezer
Am7
Got to find another way to live the life of leisure

So I drop my top
G
Mix and I mingle
C
Is everybody ready for the single and it goes...


[Chorus 1]

G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La    Now listen closely to the verse I lay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La It's all about the wordplay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La Love
The wonderful thing it does
Em7                        D/F#           
Because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
         G
Yeah the Mister A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay


[Verse 2]

                     Em7
And it's time to get ill I got your remedy
     G
For those who don't remember me
      Am7
Well let me introduce you to my style
   Em7
I try to keep a jumble
        G
In the lyrics never mumble
          Am7
When the music's makin' people tongue-tied
            Em7
You want a new song, like a new religion
  G
Music for the television
  Am7
I can't do the long division, someone do the math
         Em7
For the people write me off
           G
Like I'm a one-hit wonder
 Am7
Gotta find another way to keep from goin' under

Pull out the stops
 G
Got your attention
  C
I guess it's time again for me to mention the wordplay


[Chorus 2]

G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La    Now listen closely to the verse I lay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La It's all about the wordplay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La Love
The wonderful thing it does
Em7                        D/F#           
Because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
         G
Yeah the Mister A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay


[Bridge]

           F#m7-5
I built a bridge across the stream my consciousness
                         B
It always seems to be a flowin’, but I don't know which way my brain is goin'
        Em                                D5
Oh the ryhmin' and the timin’, Keeps the melodies inside me
              C5                               C5 C5/B C5 D5
And they're comin’ till I'm running out of air
                                                              
              F#m7-5
Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head
  B 
Are you listening to a single word I've said


[Chorus 3]

G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La    Now listen closely to the verse I lay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La La It's all about the wordplay
G Cadd9 Dadd9
Ha La La La Love
The wonderful thing it does
Em7                        D/F#           
Because I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
            G
Yeah the Mister A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay
